GOLDEN BOOT - HAT TRICK PATRICK INCREASES LEAD
Hat trick Patrick scored three this weekend to increase his lead at the top of the table to seven points. He isd now on 21 goals to second place, Conaill Taggart’s, 14.
Paddy McGeown, U17 Star – scoring takes it out of you.
As yes, but don’t forget that Conaill hasn’t played for four weeks – the joys of the 11+ or whatever it’s called these days. Now it’s all over and with no more learning to do for the rest of primary seven, Conaill can devote all his energies to scoring goals. He may have been asleep as far as scoring was concerned this last month, but once he wakens, he’ll be banging them in and breathing down Paddy’s neck.
Conaill Taggart, U11 – in 2nd place. He’s done taking it
easy now. Forget Halloween, there could be fireworks
Cup final penalty hero, Joe Mellon, sits in third place, just one behind Conaill on 13 goals. He used to have third spot all to himself, but now he shares it with 16 Star’s Brendan Blaney. Brendan just can’t stop scoring this season. He’s also on 13.
Joe Mellon, U13 – Joe’s in sparkling
form. Watch out Paddy and Conaill!
Brendan Blaney, U16 – scoring freely,
might be worth a good outside bet for
Lat yera’s winner of the Boot, Conor George, sits just behind Joe and Brendan. On twelve goals he’s not giving up the Boot that easily!
Conor George, U15 – another good bet
to come away with the Boot. Can he be
the only player since Tom Maguire to
retain the Boot?
Fifth spot sees two more under 13s, Ryan Creaney and Conall Breen keep up the challenge. They are on eleven goals.
Ryan Creaney, U13 – in 5th spot
Conall Breen, U13 – in joint 5th, with
eleven goals. The under 13 challenge
ain’t going away.
Between second and fifth, we have three goals and six players. They are just waiting for Paddy to have a quiet patch and anything could happen. The Golden Boot can’t be called yet and may very well go to the last game. It’s all to play for, strikers!
